Psalm 119:165 (KJV) Great peace have they which love thy law:
and nothing shall offend them.

peace [from Hebrew shalom]: whole, entire (1) of body, i.e. healthy, sound; (2) in number, i.e. a full number; (3) secure, tranquil; (4) a friend; (B) wholeness, safety, soundness, health
[Note: shalom is complete and total peace in all areas that relate to you.]
love: [from Hebrew 'ahav]: In short, an eager pursuit of anyone or anything
stemming from an intense, burning passionate desire for them. More on 'ahav
law: [from Hebrew Torah]: instruction, doctrine. More on Torah
offend [from Hebrew mikshowl]: That against anyone stumbles, a stumblingblock. Figuratively (a) the cause of failure, (b) incitement to go astray, (c) offense of mind or conscience.
Picture Translation of Psalm 119:165:
Abounding wholeness have those who eagerly pursue after Your Torah stemming from an intense passionate desire, for nothing will cause them to stumble from the Way!
